Chicken With Mashed Potatoes and Buttermilk Gravy

"I found the basic recipe in a cookbook by Better Homes and Gardens "Fast Fix Family Foods". But as with alot of recipes from cookbooks, I "tweak" them according to mine and SO's own personal tastes.This recipe uses foods that aren't made " from scratch" so if you want to use freshly prepared, the cooking time will be increased.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



When our great grand daughter was visiting she wanted chicken fingers like at mac donalds, so we bought a box of breaded chicken fingers. Had some left in the freezer, this was a good way to use them up. I am not a fan of milk gravy and had no buttermilk, so i made this with 2% milk, a little garlic scented vinegar, a touch of poultry seasoning, garlic salt, pepper and corn starch, a chicken broth cube, and was quite suprised how good it turned out. i had left over mashed potatoes, Instead of the oil I just used veggie spray to cook the chicken fingers.  With the potatoes, breaded chicken fingers and milk gravy, it really did turn into a comfort food meal served with sliced tomatoes.
